Knee Pain Relief In ND
Knee replacement surgery, also known as knee arthroplasty, replaces all or part of the knee joint with artificial parts depending on the extent of the damage in your knee. Arthritis, wear and tear, disease, and trauma are all reasons why damage may occur and require surgery.
As is the case with hip surgeries, knee surgeries may be performed in a minimally invasive manner to reduce post-operative pain and recovery time and may be offered on an outpatient basis. In addition, robotic assistance allows increased precision and maneuverability in tight spaces like the knee.
If the damage from arthritis is limited to only one part of your knee, your doctor might recommend a partial knee replacement, also called unicompartmental knee replacement. If arthritis affects your entire knee joint, you will likely need a total knee replacement. Your joint replacement surgeon will discuss your diagnosis, the type of surgery he recommends, and the results you can expect.
Our orthopedic surgeons perform the following types of knee surgeries:
- Partial knee replacement
- Total knee replacement
- Minimally invasive knee replacement
- Robotic partial knee replacement with MAKOplasty®
- Same-day knee replacement
- Osteotomy of the knee
- Knee revision surgery
